“The “Necronomicon” is a legendary magical book that is kept in inaccessible places only in a few, incompletely preserved specimens because it could have disastrous consequences if it fell into the wrong hands. It was written down around 730 AD in Yemen by the legendary Abdul Al Azred. It is said to tell of things and events that took place in the gray age, and illustrations of uncanny creatures lurking in the depths of the earth and the seas, one day destroying mankind and striking the world.
Al Azred’s “Necronomicon” is a kind of museum of the most wonderful abominations and perversions. The well-known writer HP Lovecraft was the first to report in his “Cthulhu” mythology of this work. Many other science fiction and fantasy writers have quoted this fictional work time and again, but it has only become a visual reality in “HR Giger’s Necronomicon”!”
The second volume of this oversized and visually overwhelming collection takes us further through the incredible history of one of the most brilliant fantasy artists of the century. Reproducing Giger’s award-winning work for the film ALIEN, his paintings, environments, sculptural works, his work for “The Tourist”, collaborations with Blondie’s Debbie Harry, his “New York City” series from the late 1970’s and much more, all beautifully reproduced in full-colour and black and white, full-bleed spreads, including fold-out pages. Also includes interviews, texts, biography. These Giger folio books have become very desirable, collectable editions in their various printings around the world, the series encompassing the work of one of the world’s most unique and influential visionaries.
